US Debt Clock

One of our readers shared this and I'm happy to pass it on:

US Debt Clock

It's almost like trying to count train cars as they pass by.  If you watch too long it makes your eyes go wacky and your stomach lurch. 

Be sure and check out the link at the bottom for your state and the home foreclosures in the bottom corner.  There are also a number of interesting tabs at the bottom. 

I'm still trying to find total number of home foreclosures for each of the last 5 years but after hours of searching I still have not found it.  A couple years ago when in was in the news daily the count was up to 12 million.  If anyone has a source for finding it please let me know.

my state, NY, is spending money like water over Niagara Falls

I know...they all are. It's terrible.

That was incredible. I am speechless. I was getting a bit dizzy since spending was outstripping assets.

Yes, we keep hearing it but the clock helps put it in perspective. Did you notice how many home foreclosures already this year?
